An Old Negative

While digging through my boxes of b/w silver prints from decades ago, I came across some shots that I hadn't remembered making or printing. I had to hang a bunch on my wall to live with for a while. This shot was one of them. Taken with a Leica M6, 21mm lens, Fuji Neopan 400 film, and printed in my wet darkroom in 1994.

The group at the time was called Solo and they hung out on West Broadway in SoHo when the neighborhood was just emerging from it's long history of being blue-collar and warehouses. I've seen this group go through various incarnations over the years, and some of them still perform DooWop music in SoHo on Spring Street. You can catch them usually on Saturday and/or Sunday afternoon.
